Summer heat getting to you? Head to Palmer Snowfield for a respite, where you can ski or snowboard (or just cool off in the snow) year-round. Timberline Resort offers the only year-round ski-lift service in America, so leave the bathing suits behind and pack your snow-jackets.
The snowfield is located on beautiful Mt. Hood, so you can just come for the scenery if you're not into sports. Avid ski fans however, may catch celebrity sightings on the slopes—professional skiers often train here in the summer.
Where is it? Mt. Hood, Oregon. Fly to Portland International Airport (check prices).
Where to Stay? Timberline Lodge is great year-round!
What Else Should I Know? Timberline's summer season runs May 29-September 3.
Who's it For? Skiers and snowboarders.
